glad that the problem is sorted out but i think the same as above.

If you ever think of actually doing this, don't pull the clutch lever with the slave dismounted. The hydraulic pressure will force the slave piston out of the bore, damaged by the retaining circlip which will be pushed out of its groove. resulting in a wrecked clutch slave unit.
